Over the two-hour time frame, participants will develop an understanding of what the global supply chain is and be able to clearly define issues and challenges for general contractors created by supply chain disruptions. The course includes an in-depth analysis of local versus global supply chains, and the advantages and disadvantages that each provide. Students will also explore strategies and practices to minimize disruptions and prepare for delays. This course investigates the supply chain, disruption events, short term impact, long term impact, and financial effects.
